I have F8s. I'm under the impression that they sleep and look dead. I'm still freaking out thinking they're dead. Anyone have experience with sleeping puffers?

Thanks

Some times I walk in on my fish sleeping first I make sure his gills are moving but if I can’t see cause he’s too far away I gently rap the glass. If he is so asleep I might nudge him a tiny bit. I don’t have any experience with puffers but I think those are some signs to look for

My pea girl freaks me out whenever I see her sleeping. Then again, I also have Di, who looks so dead when he sleeps that I have netted him out because I thought he was dead.

Floating on his side, not moving or reacting to food or taps on the side of his tank. We're pretty sure he has cataracts, too.

Yes! That original post was at like 11:30 pm for me last night. I was finally like "ok at this point there's nothing I can do" just woke up and everyone is swimming around like "uhh where's the food, lady?"
